Brahmi General Information
Brahmi is a perennial creeping herb with crinkled leaves and white flowers. It is related to spinach and snapdragons and grows in the waters of tropical marshes and wetlands in Florida (most the southern states with damp conditions by the pond or bog garden), Central America, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, China and Taiwan. Common names include Water Hyssop and Bacopa monnieri. The tops of the plant are used in herbal medicine and are an important herb in Ayurvedic medicine. Please note that Brahmi is also the Ayurvedic name for Centella asiatica or more common name is Gotu Kola. There are times when the two are confused as the same, but they are not for they are different plants with different properties. In India, this plant has also been used traditionally to consecrate newborn babies in the belief that it will open the gateway of intelligence. Brahmi is a name derived from Brahma, the creator god of the Hindu pantheon of deities. It is said that the use of Bacopa monnieri for memory goes back 3000 years or more in India. In the Vedic texts ďAthar-Ved Samhita of 800 B.C. it was cited for its medicinal properties, the main one being memory enhancement.

Brahmi Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Brahmi is highly recommended in Ayurvedic therapies as a brain and nervine tonic that benefits both the mind and spirit and improves the intellect and consciousness; the cognitive disorders of aging. It assists in heightening mental acuity and supports the physiological processes involved in relaxation. It has also been reported to reduce oxidation of fats in the blood stream, which is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.

Brahmi is considered the main rejuvenating herb for nerve and brain cells. Numerous studies have shown this herbís ability to help improve protein activity and protein synthesis, especially in brain cells, which can increase intelligence, longevity and memory and decrease senility and aging. Brahmi also has a sedative effect but instead of dulling the senses as other sedatives can do, this herb actually improves mental clarity. It can also be used to treat anxiety, and calm restlessness in children. It can enhance learning and academic performance, and sharpens short-term and long-term memory. It has been used as part of a treatment for Alzheimerís and Parkinsonís disease, attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Brahmi has also been used for cleansing the blood, reducing fevers inflammations, and joint pain, irritable bowler syndrome, and many skin conditions. Some believe it stimulates air, skin, and nail growth.

In May 1996 the Royal Society of British Science published a paper on nitric oxide, calling it the marvel of the decade. The article explained that the nitric oxide in Brahmi has an extremely positive effect on learning and memory recall, as well as on blood circulation and the function of the liver, lungs and kidneys. Research is also being done on the use of nitric oxide to treat stroke and Alzheimerís sufferers. In 1998 the Nobel Prize for medicine was awarded to three pharmacologists for their discovery that nitric oxide, in its natural form, has powerful potential as a messenger molecule in the body. A recent scientific study showed that Brahmi has potent antioxidant properties, which is why it was also revered in India for strengthening the immune system, improving vitality and performance and promoting longevity. The task of antioxidants in the body is to clean up free radical molecules. A free radical is an unstable chemical fragment, which can cause chaos by damaging DNA, corroding cell membranes and destroying cells.
